In­side Soap Awards: Em­merdale beats EastEn­ders to top prize

Malta Independent - - ENTERTAINMENT -

EastEn­ders was the big win­ner at this year’s In­side Soap Awards, tak­ing home five prizes in to­tal.

But it lost out on the night’s top award, best soap, to ITV’s Em­merdale.

Tro­phies won by EastEn­ders in­cluded best ac­tor for Steve McFad­den, who plays Phil Mitchell, and best ac­tress for Lacey Turner, the soap’s Stacey Fowler.

Tameka Emp­son, who is cur­rently com­pet­ing in Strictly Come Danc­ing, won fun­ni­est fe­male for the fifth time.

EastEn­ders’ other two awards were for Jac­que­line Jossa, who won sex­i­est fe­male, and best exit for the de­par­ture of Peggy Mitchell, played by Dame Bar­bara Wind­sor.

The In­side Soap awards, which were held at Lon­don’s Hip­po­drome Casino, are voted for en­tirely by fans.

Em­merdale’s vic­tory in the big­gest cat­e­gory of the night fol­lowed the show’s best soap win at the Bri­tish Soap Awards ear­lier this year.

The pro­gramme took home four tro­phies at the In­side Soap awards, in­clud­ing best shock twist for the death of Val, played by Char­lie Hard­wick, and a third con­sec­u­tive win in the best young ac­tor cat­e­gory for Amelia Flana­gan, who plays April Wind­sor.
